The daughter of one of the most talented -- and reluctant -- art forgers in Paris, Delia Hampton had inherited more than a little of her father's ability. But she'd never really used it...until now. Her skill with a palette would help her catch the unscrupulous art dealer who'd been blackmailing her poor papa into a life of crime. If she could only get private investigator Chase Sutton to help her instead of guard her, she was sure the plan would work. But it was impossible to tell the handsome scoundrel to keep his protective hands off her when all she wanted was to taste his fevered kisses, savor his demanding caressed and glory in a passion brighter than all of Paris's glittering lights!
Chase was determined to get to the bottom of the art forgery scandal that was sweeping the continent, and his search had finally led him to the counterfeiter's door. But when he saw the innocence and desire burning in Delia Hampton's golden eyes, he lost sight of everything else. He'd let her think she'd have her way, but he'd be at her side every moment, keeping her safe and sound where she belonged -- in his arms where he could carry her to heights of ecstasy in a masterpiece of reckless seduction she'd never forget!
